The LSU basketball team will have a different starting lineup for the third consecutive game when the Tigers try to snap a three-game losing streak Wednesday night against North Florida.
Senior guard Josh Gray will get his first start of the season, while freshman guard Antonio Blakeney will come off the bench.
Blakeney has been mired in a shooting slump, going 4-of-32 from the field — including an 0-for-9 night in a 70-58 setback to the College of Charleston on Monday. He also misfired on all six of his shots in a loss to Marquette on Nov. 23.
Gray, who started 20 games in his first season with the Tigers a year ago, will be joined in the starting lineup by guards Tim Quarterman and Jalyn Patterson, and forwards Aaron Epps and Ben Simmons.
